Guests and new members, join Pastor Jason Edwards and a few members of 2BC for an informal coffee. Ask questions and chat about anything you want to know as you get familiar with the 2BC faith family.

Second and Fourth Thursdays | 7:30 p.m.

Our gatherings in the Welcome Center are where moms can meet to share their hopes, fears, and insights, in a format that works with their schedules, that doesn’t neglect their faith nor their womanhood, their motherhood nor their purpose, their heart nor their mind. Join the 2BC evening group now or the day group this fall.

Guests at our Church Conference this month will be from the Dialogue Institute. They will host a baklava and coffee table as part of our church conference meal on that day. The Kansas City Branch of Dialogue Institute of the Southwest aims to promote mutual understanding, respect and cooperation among people of diverse faiths and cultures in the Greater Kansas City Area, Wichita, and Lawrence by creating opportunities for direct communication and meaningful shared experiences. The Dialogue Institute grew out of the need to address the question, “How can citizens of the world live in peace and harmony?” The mission of the organization is to “promote mutual understanding, respect and cooperation among people of diverse faiths and cultures by creating opportunities for direct communication and meaningful shared experiences.” The Dialogue Institute envisions a society where every person views and treats each other with dignity and where people come around shared values to promote the common good of their communities as well as the world as a whole. All church members are encouraged to attend; it’s a great opportunity to learn more about the important work 2BC is doing and dialogue with those of other faiths.

The proposal from the Chapel Renovation Task Force will be made at this meeting. The task force is hosting a preview session in the Social Room on August 1 7:00 p.m. 

Childcare is available for children birth through Pre-k. Please pick your children up for lunch and then return them to the preschool suite during the conference.Lunch cost: Age 4 and under: Free | 5–12: $5 | 13 and older: $6 | Family maximum: $16
